Reason #46 to travel to Australia
Australia was recently voted as the world’s #4 cheapest country to fly! This is great news considering the size and scope of the continent. To give you an idea, you could comfortable fit all of Europe into Australia. For those whose European geography is a little rusty, Australia is roughly the same size as the United States. A flight from Sydney to the Great Barrier Reef, is like a Miami to JFK flight.
The new research suggests that airfares average about USD $12.20 per 100kms (62mi). If you were flight from Miami to New York (approximately 1,277miles) the average price of that ticket would be about $250! According to Kayak.com today the cost of a one way ticket is about $350-$500.
It is a long haul to get there, but once you are there it’s relatively inexpensive to fly around and see the sights and wonders of Australia. Check out this promo video put together by Tourism Australia and see what you’re missing.
See you soon!
